      I love Rock music, but I feel that Jazz and Blues music gets us more respect. Those two genre's alone have influenced so many other genres (especially Rock music). Plus many people consider jazz America's classical music.

        P.S.  DON'T ask ME where they get it all.  I've already been down that road and have serious issues with my vision, my sanity and my rotator cuff!!!!

    I would say the different forms of Americana (blues, jazz, folk, etc...)roots music that ended up influencing rock music would be America's greatest exports. But then again I'm from Canada so my perspective could be different.

      Absolutely spartacusjones

      The influence of the USA on popular music has been immense. I love Blues music too, right back to Robert Johnson and also the great songs of Americana. People like Woody Guthrie, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Joni Mitchell

      I still think Rock n' Roll is King because of the effect it had on youth in America then spread like wildfire all across the world. Nothing can beat that.

    Ever since the 90's America has owned rock and roll....however to be technical I'd say their greatest export is food aid for Africa:D
    Long live kurt cobain!
